Types of Anti-DDoS solutions. Cloud solutions

22 October 2020

Cloud solutions implement almost the same protection functionality as the on-premises ones. In addition to protection from packet attacks, anti-DDoS cloud service providers often offer services to protect websites from HTTP/HTTPS bot attacks, technical support and help during DDoS attacks.

THE ADVANTAGES OF (QUALITY) CLOUD SOLUTIONS

  • Low cost - monthly subscription fee. There is usually no initial payment and no extra costs for hardware and software
  • No need to hire and educate additional staff
  • High filtration capacity
  • Quick setup (from a few minutes)
  • Supplier’s expertise in mitigating attacks
  • PoC (usually)
  • Protection of websites and web applications (at the 7th layer of the OSI model)

LIMITATIONS AND DRAWBACKS

  • Increased latency (traffic goes first to the filtering center, then to the client)
  • Passing confidential and personal data through the cloud

FOR WHOM

Cloud Solutions are optimal for SMBs.
